Description of the Project

In the town of Malling, close to Aarhus, the 2017 European Capital of Culture, you will find this “efterskole” –a Danish boarding school. Each efterskole chooses its own profile and an area on which it will focus its teaching, in addition to the compulsory subjects. Beside the main school subjects (Danish, Math, English, German, Physics, Sports) our school has 3 creative subjects from which students choose: dance, drama and music. Students are also introduced to a number of creative subjects.

The founding values of Efterskolen for Scenekunst are based upon Grundtvig/Kold social-cultural values, whose general principles are general education, co-existence and enlightenment for life, with emphasis on putting historical, political and cultural issues into context. Participation in cultural debates is also seen as an important part of the individual´s personal development.

The schools promotes openness, friendliness, tolerence and shared responsibility, and it is the perfect place for the students to build relationships, as well as develop awareness and understanding of others. We work from a positive appreciation of our humanity, which means that we recognize you as a person, and that we have confidence that you will want to actively take part in the school’s community.

At the school, the relationship between teacher and student is unique. The teacher is responsible for both the teaching and the supervision of the students outside of school hours. Teachers and students are together all day, which leads to builing closer, more personal and non-formal relationships.
